  • Any current reports on how Pirates is looking now?

    Just trying to get a sense of how Disney treated Pirates for its 50th. Thanks

    My brother and his family are there, have not been able to get in since it is currently down. Waiting to hear updates from them once it re-opens.

          They said it seemed like cannon sounds were louder in the ship vs fort scene, but nothing new popped out at them.

              Not even a noticable difference in the so called new "Auctioneer anamatranic"?

                That was my first question, and they didn't notice it, but they (like me) only go once a year or two, so it wasn't noticeable to them.

                  Too bad they didn't replace Barbossa with the original Pirate ship captain. It would have been great to hear Paul Frees shout "Strike yer colors ya bloomin' cockroaches...."

                    Well... you can hear it during the fireworks at least.
                    "Have I gone mad?"
                    "I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are. "

                      Got on this afternoon. Nothing major to report really!

                      Did notice a red feather scarf hanging off the skeleton pirate's ship helm during the storm scene though.. can't remember if that was there before or not.

                      edit: also the pirate band was out today along with pirate inspired foods.

                        I didn't know this until I listened to a soundtrack of Barbossas dialouge but at one point you can hear Paul Frees as the original Captain saying "Take em below" if you listen real closely though it is not explained where the voice is coming from.

                            Well most of the Paul Frees dialogue anyway. But that pirate was one of the most iconic in the ride and he's gone.

                              I assumed when they redid the scene back in 2006, all the Paul Frees dialogue was removed entirely. But to Geoffrey Rush's credit, he does pay respects to the Paul Frees dialogue like "Strike yer colors you bloomin' cockroaches..."

                                That's more to Michael Sprout's credit but the Where's Captain Jack Sparrow subplot still makes no sense

                                  Not to mention the name Captain Jack Sparrow mentioned way more often then is necessary. Once in a while they could have called him "Jack" or "Sparrow".

                                    Never mind the fact in the movies, only Jack refers to himself as "Captain" Jack Sparrow.

                                      Barbossa should be called Captain Pegleg. He lost a leg in Pirates 4 and he'll be hopping around again in Pirates 5.

                                        How dare you disregard the great Jack Sparrow like that!! JK Yeah, I never thought of that but now that you mention it, they do keep saying it! Multiple times! LOL Just Jack or Sparrow would have sufficed probably.
